Haiti President Martelly mourns migrant deaths after boat capsized in the Bahamas

Haitian President Michel Martelly Wednesday said he was "deeply affected" by the deaths of at least 30 undocumented Haitians whose boat capsized Monday in the Bahamas.

According to a statement from the US Coast Guard, about 30 Haitian migrants drowned when their overloaded boat overturned off Staniel Cay, in the Bahamas.

In a statement posted on the official Facebook account of Haitian government, Martelly expressed his condolence to the families of the victims and discouraged Haitians from endangering their lives in a desperate bid to look for work abroad.
